unity is an alliance of alliances that brings together Grassroots Global Justice Alliance (GGJ), Jobs with Justice, National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON), National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA), Pushback Network, and Right to the City Alliance.  UNITY alliances are mobilizing for the 99% spring because we believe it is important to tell the story of the economic crisis, in particular from the perspective of low-income communities of color in the US.

For this reason we are mobilizing Bank vs America actions at the shareholder meetings of Bank of America in Charlotte, NC on May 9th and Wells Fargo in San Francisco on April 24th, to showcase how some of the largest banks have failed communities in the US and are responsible for eating up public tax dollars, preying on the poor and working class, communities of color, immigrants and indigenous communities, and funding destructive projects that foster environmental destruction, incarceration and war.

We call on Big Banks like Bank of America and Wells Fargo to stop profiting from the crisis they caused; to uphold tenants’ right to stay and cease the use of Homeland security to raid immigrant tenants’ homes; to respect rights at work by paying back wages and stopping layoffs; and to divest from dirty coal and instead invest in impacted communities.
